Claudio Sanchez’s KEY OF Z to Go Digital Same Day as Print

Press Release:

Fresh off a whirlwind run at NEW YORK COMIC CON, Claudio Sanchez, creator and writer of THE AMORY WARS and KILL AUDIO, is proud to announce that the debut issue of his latest comic book, KEY OF Z, will be available today on the Comics by comiXology platform — iOS, Android and the Web — the same day as the print version of the comic is released. Published by BOOM! Studios, in association with Evil Ink, KEY OF Z #1 will be available in comic shops across the country and digitally, making Sanchez’s comic book accessible to fans around the world.

With art by Aaron Kuder (THE AMORY WARS), writers Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert (KILL AUDIO) bring a deadly new vision of New York City in KEY OF Z. The zombie apocalypse has transformed the city into two separate battle-hardened fiefdoms. Nick Ewing is left to survive while seeking revenge on those responsible for the death of his family – the warring gangs residing in The Big Apple’s most illustrious athletic houses. Ewing stumbles upon a sentimental artifact from his past that imbues him with surprising power. Find out what happens when he discovers the KEY OF Z.

KEY OF Z #1 features cover art by Nathan Fox (FLORESCENT BLACK) and a special incentive cover by Tony Moore (THE WALKING DEAD). This past weekend, the NYCC-exclusive cover by Declan Shalvey (28 DAYS LATER, THUNDERBOLTS) debuted as a highly-sought after show exclusive.

Claudio Sanchez is the creator/owner of Evil Ink Comics, as well as the front man of the progressive rock band, Coheed and Cambria, who have a song, “Deranged”, on the Batman: Arkham City soundtrack, which was released this week as part of the Collector’s Edition of the game. Sanchez appeared at New York Comic Con at his Evil Ink Comics booth where his signing lines lasted for hours each day; he also participated as a member of the Batman: Arkham City panel with Kevin Conroy (voice of Batman) and developers of the game, Rocksteady Studios’ Sefton Hill and Nick Arundel.

Sanchez and Echert are also in the middle of a mini-signing tour for Key of Z, dates are listed below.
